For Sale:

Meade 152ED APO Refractor with Meade LXD750 Mount. Includes the #1697 Computer Drive System (full LX200 capibilities with a refractor!) See specs on Meade's web site for details. Also includes the following optional accessories:

- Polar Bore Scope
- DC adapter (comes with AC adapter standard)
- Electric Focuser
- #1697 computer

Telescope is in excellent optical and mechanical condition. Has some normal cosmetic wear marks from traveling to 4 years of star parties. Optics are not damaged in any way! Images produced are spectacular textbook PERFECT star images with diffraction ring patterns. Mount was sent in for maintence service (no problems... just wanted to have it checked out) in the fall of last year. Mount is rock solid and tracks well beyond what is needed for deep sky imaging. When drift aligned, my ST-4 would give errors of only 1 or 2. I ditched the Meade tripod and had a custom portable pier made for this telescope. (See photos below. It's the black one.) This allows viewing over the entire sky area and is more stable then the tripod that it came with. The last image is a two hour exposure astrophoto taken with THIS telescope and mount, taken by me. Total invested in this instrument is $6700. Reduced again to $3950 or best offer. See photos of this instrument below. ST-4 and (white) Astropier not included. Would prefer to deliver within 200 miles of Portland, Oregon. Would consider shipping if the buyer wants to pay for packing and shipping charges. Email me with questions or custom photo requests. Serious inqueries only please.
